This lovely fellow was perched on my tomato plant earlier this week.
I believe he had just eclosed (come out of his cocoon). He was fanning his wings opened and closed slowly. It looked like he was having a good stretch and he made no move to fly. He did shift around on the leaf as I moved around, snapping pictures liked crazy.
Those of you who garden can tell that my tomato plants are not looking so great. They have a bug or a disease and I haven't been able to figure out what it is. My neighbors plants have the same stuff. Maybe I'll figure it out before next year. If anyone knows what the problem is, please share it with me. If you click on either photo it should open up bigger to give you a better look.
